Heritage Park, Calgary

I’ve been here in Calgary since Monday.

Thursday and Friday I taught classes for Heritage Park. It’s the Iron Quilter Challenge this morning and I’m speaking at the Gala Dinner this evening.

So, what is Heritage Park? It’s Canada’s largest living history museum,taking visitors back to the turn of the twentieth century.

From the Opera House, IMG_7179where Festival set up was taking place…IMG_7102Lots of quilts!IMG_7105Past the Cottage Hospital,IMG_7091the barracks,IMG_7095the Rectory,IMG_7110next to St. Martin’s Church,IMG_7108down past the elevator,

Speaking of quilts….IMG_7182Just a few in the log cabin display.IMG_7184Hung from the rafters.IMG_7189We’re on the fair weather plan which means that there will be quilts hung all over the village, both inside and out.

A little risk taking is good for the soul!

Too much fun in Canada, eh?

    I thought you might have a picture of the two-storey outhouse. Hope you are enjoying this wonderful historical village.

  3. I attended the quilt show on Saturday. Beautiful quilts no matter where you looked. It did rain but it didn’t last long. What is a quilt show without a merchant’s mall? Took a couple things home with me. Was a good day.
